We called off here as Betty's tea rooms were queuing around the block on the sunday afternoon.
In my opinon this place is like an old peoples home with its dated decor- it just feels grubby and not cared for.
We opted for the Afternoon tea, which had a choice of sandwiches of which you were only allowed one, a fruit scone and a cuppa tea myself opting for lady grey.
Myself and my partner had the chicken and cranberry and the wensleydale and plum chutney sandwiches and decided to share and half of each other's.
I was a little disappointed as the sandwiches were a little bland, the scones were a little dry but the saving grace was the jam which was delicious.
The tea in the chipped cups were a little off putting too I just feel like this place needs a little more TLC and it would make this a nice little tea shop in York, but I feel its definently in the shadows of Betty's tea rooms as it is now!!
